Join us as we look back over the course we’ve traveled and chart the progress we’ve made this year. This is the path to better health.
Pen Bay Medical Center and MaineHealth have a long-standing commitment to the health and well-being of our community and the people we serve. In keeping with that mission, MaineHealth and its member organizations offer a wide range of community programs and services free of charge. Each year the Community Benefit Report is published to share the compelling stories about the people and families whose lives are touched by the MaineHealth community, and the dedicated staff who provide that care.
In 2016, the Knox County Community Health Coalition, Maine CDC, Midcoast District Coordinating Council and Pen Bay Medical Center held three community discussions about community health needs identified in the most recent Community Health Needs Assessment: cancer, alcohol and substance abuse, and infectious disease.
The purpose of these forums was to present key findings from the assessment, learn from community members about what is important to them and begin to identify community health priorities for Knox County.
Report on the Health Status of Knox County Communities
In support of the MaineHealth vision of “working together so our communities are the healthiest in America,” Pen Bay Medical Center has released the 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment. The report on the health of Knox County residents identifies key health challenges and shares a vision for promoting wellness and improving care.
The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment has:
- Data on the health status of Knox County
- Three-year action plan by Pen Bay Medical Center for making improvements
The report is available to all local organizations and community members to help coordinate community health improvement and address needs.
If you have questions about the report, or about getting involved with activities, please email CHNA@mainehealth.org. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
